ABOUT CAPRICHO | Design Evolutions
Lupe Blakeley opened the first Alterations Unlimited more than 20 years ago. Over time, her love of fine details and textiles became an upscale custom window coverings shop, known as Drapes Unlimited. In recent years, the business grew into full-service custom interiors, what is now known as Capricho Interiors. With a perfect mix of design personalities, our team provides an exciting, sincere approach to professional design services and high-end home furnishings.
In January 2015, Capricho Interiors relocated to a new retail store location in south Lubbock to provide clients a better shopping experience. The new location provides an ever-changing selection of in-stock furniture, accessories, lighting, rugs, bedding, and other home items available to indulge your home.
Capricho Interiors is privileged to work within Lubbock and its surrounding areas. In addition to personal clients, the design team at Capricho Interiors has collaborated with several Lubbock home builders consecutively for the past 8 years during the Parade of Homes, showcasing the latest trends and timeless designs.
OWNER & DESIGNER
With over 20 years experience as a Lubbock small business owner, Lupe knows the importance of providing a sincere approach to her clients. Her dedication to get to know the client to represent their unique style is apparent with every project. Lupe’s expertise in custom window coverings has carried over into her skill of creating timeless, beautiful spaces. When the work day is done, Lupe can be found spending quality time with her boys; husband Jim, sons Steven, Jimmy, and Alex.. as often as possible around the dinner table enjoying one of Jim’s signature meals!
OWNER & OPERATIONS MANAGER
As an integral part of Capricho Interiors, Jim skillfully balances customer installations & deliveries while managing all the “behind-the-scenes” roles in a retail environment. Jim won’t claim to have an eye for interior design, but he appreciates the finer things in life and specializes in finding the most comfortable chair at Market! When he’s not inventing a new, ingenious way to speed up installations, Jim enjoys fishing and hunting with his boys, revamping his pizza dough recipe, or rooting on the Red Raiders.
Heather started working with Lupe at Drapes Unlimited in 2008, just before earning her Bachelor of Interior Design from TTU. She loves that she can call working at Capricho her "dream job!" Heather's style is all about the details, and she strives to provide her clients with functional spaces. As a new Mom, Heather understands when a client needs something kid friendly! When she’s not headed to a client appointment, or dreaming up ideas for the store, Heather enjoys spending time with her husband Jeremy, and daughter Claire.
Joining Capricho in 2015, Kailey brings a new dynamic to the team as she started her career working with a local builder designing new homes. She can quickly draw up and space plan a room while selecting the best pieces for her clients home! Kailey loves to design spaces that articulate the clients story though art, textiles, and furnishings. After earning her Bachelor of Interior Design from Texas Tech University in 2013, Kailey married her high school sweetheart, Casey. Together they enjoy cheering on the Red Raiders, tackling projects on their first home, and spending time with friends.
